Card Stock Any Color

Small bits of ribbon , lace and buttons


A Font of your Choice

1. Download the CD template and save to a folder of your choice.

2. Open up your CD template in a graphics program and print onto your card stock. We used plain white cardstock but feel free to experiment with any color you like.

3. Cut template out along solid lines and fold along dashed lines. Glue tabs to the inside.

4. Cut a contrasting piece of card stock or patterned paper about 1/4" smaller than your folded CD Sleeve. Glue in place.

4. Use your graphics program or word program to write your message for your CD Sleeve. Since we are making a favourite songs Mother's Day CD we used the word Mother and printed it on a contrasting piece of paper. Cut your written message paper 5 inches long and 1 3/4" wide and glue to the right side of your cover.

5. Cut two ribbons or two pieces of string, or cord, long enough to wrap around the CD cover and tie at the top.

6. Find a large transparent graphic.

We are using Mother’s Day Elements By Two Sister's Doodles.

Print out your graphic on sturdy paper and cut around the outside of the graphic. Glue the graphic on top of the side paper and words and on top of the ribbon.

6. Add Ribbons, bows, buttons or lace to your card to make it attractive.  We used a small contrasting square of pink paper and added a bow to the square and a bow to the victorian girl's dress to complete our special Mother's Day CD Sleeve. Add your favourite pictures to a Cd or a Music Selection CD.
